Best Buy Charges $10 More For Opened Hard Drive

It’s always important to check the price tags in the store to make sure you’re not getting ripped off. Alan writes:

I was in Best Buy yesterday, purchasing an external hard drive at Best Buy, and caught this little pricing glitch. Nothing like paying an extra $10 and not even getting the original packaging or the “new out of the box” feeling.

Hey maybe that’s the fee for insuring that there’s actually a hard drive inside instead of ceramic bath tiles.
